New to the ShanOre engagement collection, this exquisite 14 karat gold ring is ready to accommodate the perfect round-cut diamond chosen by a gentleman for his intended bride. Hands cradling a crowned heart, the symbol of the Claddagh, alternate with the three-cornered shape of the Trinity knot all the way around the band. A beaded trim contributes to the ring?s regal look. In looking more closely, one discovers two more hands embedded in the sides of the band that reach toward the mount, imitating the Claddagh design, the engagement jewel standing in for the crowned heart. This ring is also available in 14 karat white gold, and when ordering, the purchaser should specify the dimensions of the stone he plans to add.
The Tale of the Claddagh and the Plot of the Knot
The Claddagh symbol, which Irish legend claims dates back to the 17th century, recognizes the affection between two individuals: the hands represent friendship, the heart, love, and the crown, faithfulness. Worn with the bottom of the heart pointed outward, the ring signals that the wearer is searching for a relationship. Worn with the bottom of the ring pointed toward the wearer?s heart, the ring sends the message that the wearer has already found love. The Trinity knot finds its roots in Ireland?s religious history. Typically, the three corners of the knot epitomize the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the Christian Trinity, three individual forces that intertwine to form an even greater power. Today, the three corners may embody any threefold meaning important to the person who dons the design?for example, Maiden, Mother, and Crone; life, death, and rebirth; or earth, air, and water.
The Allure of Long Ago
The lady whose beloved gives her this ring as a promise of his betrothal feels like a queen. The romance of distant lands and of eras ruled by chivalry entices her. She adores the painstaking detail and hidden treasures in the band, as well as the most recognizable icons of Ireland hugging her finger at all times. This bride shares a tender admiration for this country with her significant other. Upon visiting this couple?s home, friends and family will notice tributes to a rich Irish heritage decorating walls and shelves, and will feel welcomed by a cheery warmth.
